GOC erases optometrist based in London
The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to erase Malti Amin, an optometrist based in London, from its register.
A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found her fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to conducting unauthorised sales and refund transactions using her personal credit and debit cards and failing to provide information to evidence insight and remediation.
Ms Amin was previously suspended from the register in September 2020 for twelve months, which was extended by another twelve months in September 2021 following a review.
Ms Amin has until 28 October 2022 to appeal her erasure.
